Dragon Quest VII: Ok, before you get into your first battle, we really need to introduce the world to you! Explore the town and be sure to talk to everyone so you get a real feel for this world and the people in it. Now go to the other town. Don’t worry, there’s no monsters to get in your way! Talk to everyone here, too. Alright, now go back to the first town. Now head over to the big shrine, then go to the little shrines, they’re technically right over there but the path goes all the way around the island (again, don’t worry about monsters). Now, there were some puzzles here, but we simplified them a little bit! Head back to the big shrine again, and figure out where to put those pieces of equipment. Now go back to the first town, then the second town, and then back to the big shrine one more time. All you have to do is solve the three piece jigsaw puzzle, and then you’re ready for your first battle!
Dragon Quest VIII: Who are you? Who are they?! Where’s the princess?!! DOESN’T MATTER, LOOK OUT, SLIMES!!! GO GOGO GO GO GO!!!!!!
Eeeeeeeey So how ‘bout that Dragon Quest VIII 3DS remake that came out today? My copy didn’t actually come in the mail until a little while ago, so I drew this to kill time. I might do some of the other characters at some point.

Not going to lie, I spent about an hour researching the actual resolution of Dragon Quest VIII when stretched to widescreen after my capture card recorded it at 4:3. I wound up measuring my actual TV with a ruler, since there’s, like, 4 different resolutions under the 480p standard. Turns out it’s 852x480, which is pretty much true 16:9.
The more you know.
Addendum: Spent almost an additional hour going back and making the .gifs shittier just so Tumblr would upload them without freezing up and giving me shit about technical difficulties. Choke on my dick, Tumblr.(Feel free to just delete this junk if you feel the need to reblog this shit for some odd reason)
